Don and Ellie (Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton) are a divorced couple who have remained friends despite their past.

He is engaged to Missy (Amanda Seyfried) and is bringing her home to meet his family.

The problem is that Alejandro's birth mother, Madonna (Patricia Rae), is a devout Catholic who will not attend the wedding if she finds out that her son's adoptive parents (Don and Ellie) are divorced. So, Don and Ellie pretend to still be married for the weekend of the wedding.
